The council have kindly installed new layouts on West Princes St, making it one way. Here we see the cycle lane that has been generously provided to exempt cyclists from the one way system. The idea is to cycle through the wee lane, swerve round the parked cars headlong into oncoming one way traffic. Fantastic.
